Move Over Mr. Bean, Mitt Has Arrived
The British press is having a blast with Romney’s arrival in London. Mitt’s gaffes have been occurring almost hourly and the Republican presidential nominee is now being dubbed Mr. Bean. He’s been stumbling around London as if he’s the half-wit love child of a Dubya/Palin love tryst. Romney’s gone from disparaging the Brits’ efforts in preparing for the Olympics to referring to the UK as “the nation of Great Britain.” (There is no such nation. Great Britain is an island consisting of three nations: England, Scotland and Wales. Along with Northern Ireland, they form the United Kingdom.) Not knowing your host country’s name is not the brightest thing an aspiring American president can do when abroad.
If you’ve missed any of Mitt’s gaffes , you can catch up on the fun here.
Andrew Sullivan has noted that right-wing media has said little if anything of Romney’s blunders. No surprise there, of course. One exception has been conservative blogger, Dan Riehl, who expressed his thoughts on Prime Minister David Cameron defending his country’s efforts in staging the Olympics. When I think of the term ‘ugly American’, I’m thinking exactly of people like Dan Riehl. Here’s what this guy wrote.
A Limp Wrist-ed David Cameron hits back at Mitt Romney over Olympic doubts
Get over it, Britain. You’re a second rate, semi-degenerate nation still on the way down because you went too far to the left too long ago for anyone to care about. Don’t expect us to wring our hands over what you losers did. We’re too busy fighting to make sure it doesn’t happen here.
I really give a flip about what David Cameron thinks. yawn … just be glad we continue to allow you to think you’re actually in the game on most things. Now, get out of our face and try to not screw up the Olympics more than you have already.
Mostly a bunch of feckless wankers if you ask me. Put a Gold Medal on that and aim it at the Queen’s arse. How ya liking America, now, mates? LOL
Disgusting and juvenile but what more would you expect from a Breitbart.com writer. Sleaze is what Riehl knows. Sleaze is what Riehl does. You might be interested in knowing this guy is one of Romney’s approved bloggers.
